Netflix released the first trailer for Army of Thieves at their Tudum event Saturday. The film is a prequel to Zack Snyder’s zombie heist flick Army of the Dead. And while Army of Thieves doesn’t have any zombies — it’s billed as “a romantic comedy heist film” — it does bring back Army of the Dead’s German safecracker Ludwig Dieter, once again played by Matthias Schweighöfer, who also directs the film.

The official synopsis sheds more light on what Army of Thieves is all about:
“In this prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.”

The cast includes Nathalie Emmanuel (the Fast & Furious franchise, Game of Thrones) as Gwendoline, who recruits Dieter for the heist. Ruby O. Fee and Stuart Martin co-star.
While Zack Snyder didn’t direct Army of Thieves, he is a producer on it along with his wife Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller.
